    As a kid, that moment you first discovered Powermaster Optimus Prime was pure magic. It was Optimus Prime with all the dials turned up to eleven, and it rocked my socks off. There was so much fun packed into the design.

    As cool as the Combat Deck of the original OP is, there's something so satisfying and awesome about the play pattern of the trailer combining with the cab to form a Super Robot.

    Lol even back then I would swap between core and super mode based on who he was fighting or hanging out with. Fighting Galvatron? Super mode same height. Fighting G2 Devestator? Core mode so Devestator looks bigger.

    Even then 30 plus years ago, fan of heights making sense :lol  .

    Was at the show today, they had the hand painted prototype on display. Super Ginrai is roughly the height of a Din A4 leaflet they handed out at the show of paper (so 280mm/11")

    He is much bigger than I have imagined after seeing the preview pictures.

    Shots like these illustrate the other issue I have with this engineering: While he has actual ankle pivot, the way it's engineered behind the 'foot', it seems as if he hasn't.

    I wish the actual foot plate would have a fold-out hinge to provide a proper toe that folds out in front of the lower leg. This would also make a western PMOP adaptation more feasible.

    While the feet are source material accurate (both toy and show) I wished Takara would move away from super accurate designs and give it a more realistic foot.

    On the other hand I don’t know how to design it in a better way and still look like Super Ginrai. The approach Fans Hobby took with Power Baser looks equally terrible.

    The toy looks good in person and a Nucleon Quest version is now a sure buy from me (before it was a maybe).

    My main issue with the feet is the way they’re designed means they can’t tilt forward and back. Pretty much limits his “dynamic” posing to be him to just doing various squat poses.

    Dont really mind the feet, they're almost like a hakama, where they almost cover the feet

    Thank you for posting :) 

    Doesn't really bother me, but I'm sure a 3rd party company will have you covered, with an upgrade attachment.

    Also, I imagine you may be able to just attach the God Ginrai feet part to give him a toe. I imagine it won't make him too big as, they probably don't want him to tower over MP Starsaber.
